Snowshoe Trail, December 6th, 2016

commentary and photos by Nickie
Eighteen hikers enjoyed an easy hike along the Snowshoe Trail today.  There was a bit of snow on the ground but not enough to warrant snowshoes.  A group of trail clearers did a great job of cleaning the trail earlier on this year.  We all appreciate the hard work that goes into maintaining all the trails.  A big thanks goes out to Ron and his crew.

Six of us braved the bitter wind chill on a brand new hike behind the golf course led by Chuck and special guest Ron Kruger. We had lunch overlooking a frozen pond, we checked out an empty bird's nest and came across tons of puff mushrooms, and a hornets' nest. PHOTOS

commentary and photos by Donna
It was hard to believe the warm weather for the middle of November but 14 hardy hikers enjoyed every moment of it as we hiked to Sheriff Lake and had lunch with jackets off on the shore. Chuck still found chaga and comb tooth fungus along the trail. Phil and Lorne posed in front of the crack of an eratic rock. PHOTOS
